PreCentral: Write for webOS Nation - you, yes you

webOS Nation

You know who you are. You're the one that lives and breathes webOS. You've racked up hundreds of dollars in App Catalog charges, use your TouchPad more than your laptop, roll with your own custom-coded kernel, and have a stash of spare Pre3 phones and TouchPads in safety deposit box for a rainy day. Or you just happen to find webOS fascinating and love using it and just want a chance to write about it on the best webOS blog with the biggest readership and most awesome and engaged community you'll find on this side of open source.

By now you've likely figured out what topic we're introducing here - we're looking for new, exciting, and engaging souls to write for webOS Nation. webOS is obviously near and dear to our hearts here, so it really helps if it's the same to you. We're looking for hardy individuals who love (and sometimes hate) webOS apps, those that can hack through Enyo code like a mutant combination of Bear Grylls and Chuck Norris, or those that know the webOS community better than the back of their own hand. What we're not looking for: columnists, editorialist, or angry badgers.

It's important that you be able to dedicate time to this endeavour. For this to work we need a few dedicated souls who can take the time to write at least a few times a week. We won't lie, the pay won't be good enough for you to quit your day job anytime soon, but for the chance to get paid by writing about something you love, is there anything better? Okay, there's bacon, but this is a very close second.

Here's what to do: send an email to [email protected] with the title of "writer [your full name here]" as the title. Except, you know, put your full name in the space where the brackets are. Your email should include some information about who you are, what you love about webOS, and a link to your webOS Nation forum profile.

You should also include two plain text samples of your writing about webOS (show some variety if you can, review an app and rewrite one of our awfully-composed news items if you so like). Do not send us attachments, links to Google Docs, or smoke signals. Also, you must be 18 years old or older - we appreciate your enthusiasm, dear youngster, your time will come.

Derek's going to be evaluating these applications personally, and he gets angry when directions aren’t followed. We do appreciate creativity, and there's plenty of space for creativity within these bounds - go out of these pretty wide bounds and we're apt to skip over your application.

Interested? You made it this far into this rambling call for writers, so clearly you are. Follow the guidelines set out above, get your applications in by February 29th, and come a day in the near future you might just find yourself writing for the world's best webOS site in the world.

      Our current app is available on 4K/UHD LG television models running the following system software:
      webOS 3.0 webOS 3.5 webOS 4.0 webOS 5.0 No 720p or 1080p (“full HD”) sets are supported for our current app at this time.
      Note: Due to root certificate limitations with the device OS itself, only webOS 5.0+ devices support secure connections with a personal Plex Media Server. To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.

      Hi,
      I'd like to easily stream/cast some movie files (.mkv, .mp4 etc...) on my Ubuntu 21.04 PC to a LG Smart TV having WebOS 4.9.x.
      Both TV and PC are connected on the same LAN network via ethernet cable!
      My router does not provide any UPnP feature!
      I tried to use (with no success):
      - Kodi - enabled UPnP/DLNA and shared my library, then right clicked on a movie and ran "Play using", selected "TV" but I was not able to see anything on my LG TV (i went to Movies and Photos and did not see any remote device or other stuff) (does this method nroamlly work? Maybe there is something wrong with my Kodi / Router configuration? What screen do I have to access on the LG TV to see the DLNA devices?)
      - Integrated Ubuntu "Media Sharing" (see https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2020/04/home-media-server-ubuntu-2004/) - same as above, I could not see any device from the TV when this option is enabled
      - VLC UPnP feature - same as above
      What options do I have, without buying any additional device like Chromecast, Raspberry PI etc...?

      I am creating a streaming application, where user can access a list of mkv files from my server, Mkv is not supported in web browsers and it is not loading properly within my webOS web app.
      I cannot modify my files to another video format.
      Is there a native player for LG WebOS that I can embed into my web application ?
      Is there any video player with web sdk to play mkv on a smart tv.
      Ps: my videos are working well on chrome, as for Firefox or Safari, it tells me that the format is not supported.

      Just getting the runaround from LG, only want a baseline figure, they sent me this
       
      , our technicians have explained that we cannot calculate the unit's actual power consumption when not in standby because there are too many factors that could affect this calculation. These factors include how many pixel refreshers are run, whether the unit is connected to the internet, external devices connected, speakers connected, sound systems connected, HDD connected and recording set ups. I am afraid that we consequently cannot answer your question.

      we all know LG are not helpful to customers , but there’s no need to keep proving it.
      this TV has a good energy rating so figures must be available, they either dont care or understand what I am asking
       
      thanks

      The problem that my QNAP NAS Mediaserver disappears from the WebOS Home screen and from the Home dashboard happens irregularly and unpredictably almost daily. The only way to get it back is to reset WebOS to its initial (factory) settings. After I do that, it always reappears on the Home scree/Home dashboard. I have no idea why this happens, it even happens after I watch an hour of movie content from the NAS and then want to browse through the files on the NAS: it suddenly is not accessible anymore. I tried to tweak (a lot of) the NAS settings but nothing helps.  
      My NAS has a fixed IP in my home LAN. Is it possible to connect to it with the IP address? 
      Any other suggestions how to remedy this tedious problem are welcome!

      In the file attached is a photo of the Home dashboard with the Mediaserver present.
